    Museum of Fine Arts Blind Tour

    Previously we blogged about the Museum of Fine Art's ASL tours held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.  The MFA has other noteworthy tours that you might be interested in.

    Feeling for Form - Blind and Low Vision Visitors
    A series of introductory one-on-one guided tours for blind and low vision individuals who want to build a deeper relationship with the Museum.  Each monthly session focuses on a different collection and includes a wayfinding and verbal description of the space.  These tours are given on the 1st Sunday of the month at 10:30am and the 3rd Wednesday at 6:30pm.  Individuals can attend one or more sessions whichever interests them.  Guided tours can also be scheduled at other times.  Pre-registration is not required unless a visitor needs a sighted guide or other access accommodation.  Contact Valerie Burrows at 617-369-3302 or vburrows@mfa.org to register.  Call 617-369-3189 or email access@mfa.org or visit www.mfa.org for more information.

    Beyond the Spectrum - Adventures in Art for Children with Autism
    A specially designed program for children ages 8-12 on the Autism Spectrum, including Asperger's Syndrome, accompanied by a parent or caregiver.  Upon arrival children will be divided onto groups by ages and/or needs.  The program meets on the 1st Saturday of each month from 10:30am - 12:00pm.  Each class combines gallery exploration with an art-making activity.  Pre-registration is required by the prior Tuesday.  The cost is $8 per child (includes materials and museum admission), and one adult is admitted free with each child ticket, which also includes discounted parking.  The program meets in the Education Center in the Druker Family Pavilion, Room 159 at 10:20am before the start of each class.  For more information, or to pre-register visit www.mfa.org/programs/community-programs/beyond-the-spectrum, call 617-369-3303, or email artfuladventures@mfa.org.
